Canada CAT Submission 2021

Our joint submission details our concerns about the continued prevalence of Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) in Canada and the failure of the Canadian government to take concrete and effective action to end FGM/C in Canada and provide support for survivors, which constitute a violation of its obligation under Article 2 (obligation to prevent torture, including through legislative measures) of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (“the Convention”) to address FGM/C.

Submitted by Equality Now and the End FGM Canada Network.
